Strategic Marketing Course - Corus Entertainment HQ. Toronto

The feedback is in and the CTAM Strategic Marketing Course was a huge success!

On May 29-30, 2013, 51 members of CTAM Canada, from across Canada and different parts of the industry, participated in the second CTAM Canada Strategic Marketing Course held at Corus Entertainment's stunning Toronto headquarters. Harvard Business School Professors Bharat Anand and Rajiv Lal presented six cases that were used as a starting point to explore many of the key issues facing us in today’s highly competitive environment. The class considered the development of mobile/digital/social-media marketing strategies, how to manage the transition to an environment focused more on customer retention than customer acquisition and how to think strategically/systematically in assessing the competition while developing marketing plans. It was a stimulating two days that provided everyone with additional insights and tools that can be immediately applied in their daily work lives.

Representatives from the following companies were in attendance: Astral, Corus, Stingray Digital, World Fishing Network, Rogers, Corus, Shaw, Westman Communications, Source Cable, Bell Media, CARTT, TVO, Markdale Cable, BBC Kids, Accessible Media Inc., LG Electronics, Blue Ant Media, Hollywood Suite, Ogilvey & Mather and Charlton Strategic Research.

The participants were unanimous in their praise of this intensive marketing management development session:

"The breadth of the case studies provided many different strategic POVs."

"I appreciated the critical thinking, especially how we can apply the learnings in other sectors to the broadcasting industry."

"The use of case studies and active class discussions helped everyone stretch their thinking."

"Excellent information on eBay/Amazon and the various approaches to online marketing."

"The professors were very insightful/dynamic/approachable…the information was very useful. The cases were well-chosen for breadth and relevance."

"The experience made us take a step back and think of our everyday jobs and strategies."

"What aspects of the program did I find most useful? All of it!"

See pictures from the course below. Based on the feedback received, CTAM Canada’s Strategic Marketing Course will definitely be coming back in 2014! We will review the suggestions for additional topics to develop yet another highly relevant curriculum that addresses the issues our members face in Canada. Stay tuned for announcements early in the new year.

CTAM Canada greatly appreciates the generous support provided by Corus in hosting the event and by our sponsors: AMC and LG Electronics.
